June 2017 Guild meeting and events


June is here.  Summer, vacations, school gets out, and gardeners spend as much time as they can outside lovingly coaxing vegetable and flowers to grow.  Quilters might surface now and then to enjoy the warm breezes and go for picnics, BBQs, and hikes in nature all the while looking for inspiration for that next project.

For all of you who attended the Heritage Park Quilt Festival, I hope your creative juices were stirred and you were inspired.  What a great show – quilts made by children as young as 11 to Grandmas who have quilted all their lives.  The variety was incredible.

Our June guild meeting is coming up soon – June 10 @ 09:30.


Remember this month is our final meeting for the 2016-2017 year and that means its POTLUCK time!  Get out your favourite recipes and share some of you yummy goodies with everyone.

Don’t forget to bring your Challenge entries.  We’d all love to see what you’ve been working on this year.  See the Challenges tab if you need a reminder about what the y are.  You can also review the May post for a reminder.  If you have finished a comfort quilt or two you can bring those also.

Set-up & Clean-up Crew for June:  Shelly N, Kelly, and whoever volunteered in May.  Extra volunteers would be appreciated.  Please remember to bring milk/cream for the coffee & tea and some snacks for morning break.
